District 9, the new movie about insectlike aliens stranded
in South Africa, pulls off its fantastic premise through a clever mix
of documentary-style cinematography and convincing visual effects.

“I very purposefully wanted all of District 9 to feel
as real as possible, even though, you know, 50 percent of the film is
presented in a cinematic way,” director Neill Blomkamp told Wired.com
in a video interview. “The environment is 110 percent real. It’s pure,
pure Johannesburg.” reportaje Wired Aquí
